Up and Down in the Dales

Up and Down in the Dales by Gervase Phinn

Anyone sharp-eyed enough to have caught sight of the occupants of the Mercedes that evening as it sped through the centre of Fettlesham in the direction of Fettlesham Royal Infirmary would have though they were hallucinating: an ageing German admiral with a handlebar moustache was at the wheel of the car, a heavily bemedalled SS officer was in the passenger seat, and on overweight nun with crimson lips and sky-blue eye-shadow was sitting the back gesticulating.

We hadn't long been on Infirmary Road before we heard the siren and saw the flashing blue light.

  2. I got hooked with the teaser and I had to look for the meaning of gesticulate. Thanks! Another word for my vocabulary. =)

    I'll be adding the book in my reading list.

    Thanks for visiting my site.

  4. I'm wondering is the Nun an impostor? "crimson lips and sky-blue eye-shadow...really? I think I will have to visit my library and see if they have this book.
